HOF Productions’ ‘Road to Canton’ Mission Podcast with the Class of 2021 Finalists continues today with former Pittsburgh Steelers guard Alan Faneca.

This is the sixth time that Faneca has been selected as a Finalist. If he and 2021 Contributor Finalist Bill Nunn are both elected, they would join Steelers greats Donnie Shell, Bill Cowher and Troy Polamalu for the Class of 2020 and 2021 Enshrinements in Canton this August.

Alan discussed what it was like to get the call on being a Finalist from David Baker.

“I always enjoy getting the call from David,” Faneca said. “Great guy, you know every year it kind of catches me off guard. Here we go again. Let’s do it. It is definitely exciting.”

The wide range of topics covered in this episode also include: the Browns vs. Steelers playoff game and rivalry, Faneca’s love of playing with Jerome Bettis, his bout with COVID-19 and overcoming it and his visits that he made to the Pro Football Hall of Fame during his career when he played in two Hall of Fame Games.
